Using The New LLVM/Clang OpenMP Support
Written by Michael Larabel in LLVM on 22 May 2015 at 01:28 PM EDT. 1 Comment
As of this month, the mainline code for LLVM and Clang finally have complete OpenMP support (currently against the OMP 3.1 specification).

While we already covered the prominent Clang OpenMP details earlier this month, the official LLVM blog has out a post today about using this parallel programming API for C/C++ programs with Clang -- in particular the few setup steps and how to test your compiler has working OpenMP support.

Those interested can read the blog post. This full OpenMP 3.1 support will be found in LLVM/Clang 3.7.
